Song of Solomon 8:6-8 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

Put me like a seal on your heart,
    like a seal on your arm.
Love is as strong as death.
    Desire is as strong as the grave.
Love bursts into flames.
    It burns like a very hot fire.
Even much water cannot put out the flame of love.
    Floods cannot drown love.
If a man offered everything in his house for love,
    people would totally reject it.

The Woman’s Brothers Speak

We have a little sister,
    and her breasts are not yet grown.
What should we do for our sister
    on the day she becomes engaged?

Song of Songs 8:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

Place me like a seal over your heart,
    like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy[a] unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
    like a mighty flame.[b]
Many waters cannot quench love;
    rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
    all the wealth of one’s house for love,
    it[c] would be utterly scorned.

Friends

We have a little sister,
    and her breasts are not yet grown.
What shall we do for our sister
    on the day she is spoken for?
